This is one of my favorite meal prep treats and it's literally one of the easiest to make. My partner and I were getting tired of our old lunchtime standbys (chicken salad, meat loaf, salmon). Sometimes you just want something that tastes as good as Chinese takeout or ramen but that won't leave you feeling gross and bloated. Try this quick one that only has FOUR ingredients and can be prepped and stored for easy lunches or dinners during the week.
We use soba which is a buckwheat noodle poplar in Japan with lots of health benefits (it's gluten free for instance). Most grocery stores carry soba now. You store and prep it just like dried spaghetti. If you don't like or can't find soba you can also use frozen jasmine or frozen brown rice. Now, even though we use "less sodium" sauce, the stuff is still high in sodium. So make sure the rest of your meals for the day are moderate in sodium and always drink plenty of water. Nutritional info and macros follow below.
